A light plane crashed in the Australian state of Queensland, killing three people, state police said.

 

“This afternoon, November 4, the bodies of three people were found who were killed in a light aircraft crash near McKinley (Queensland ),” a police statement said.


According to police, an unnamed member of the public contacted local emergency services that afternoon and told them about the crash about 40 kilometers northwest of McKinley.

“A team on a rescue helicopter discovered the wreckage of the plane from the air. Police officers later arrived at the scene and found the bodies of three victims on board the plane,” police said.

Police said the light aircraft may have been used as part of a collaboration with Queensland Fire and Emergency Services to produce maps for fire monitoring.
